Garden 2

Channeling Picasso …
if he had had and iPad, I wonder if he would have embraced this medium.

Into the Light

Interplay between bold and muted color, fine and heavy lines … I like the oriental flavor of this one.

Birdseye

A recurring theme in my early line drawings was birds and birds mixed with faces. The theme is back in my latest drawing.

Vace

Puns … can’t help it … love ’em. This drawing was inspired by a Picasso vase I saw on Antiques Roadshow. I have a deep affinity for Picasso.

Evil

Most of my work deals with positive, uplifting themes and indeed my intention as an artist is to renovate and reinvigorate the spirit. The path to a full life, however, requires mastery of another skill … the confront of evil.

Humanity

It’s important to me that my art communicates … after all, that’s what’s its for. This one is a heartfelt social message that our world is a tapestry of lots of different people of a lot of different colors, cultures and faiths. We must not only get along, but we must help one another, uplift one another … we’re all in this together.

Shadows 2 … green room

Lots of kudos for this one. I’ve said it before, but I love the big format. If it weren’t for the pain and expense of shipping, framing, storing I’d make them all monsters … but then, that’s the beauty of digital … I can carry thousands in my pocket.

Tanechka

I am often asked to do portraits … I don’t often do portraits. My wife does portraits, and she’s really good at it. So, I did a portrait of my wife … mine are impressions; hers are much more representational but she really conveys the spirit.

Platinum

Maybe this is Elvis if he were still alive today … funny I keep drawing people with gray hair … trying to get comfortable with aging I guess )))
